    12.04 LTS - Shutdown freezes after "Power down."

    Hey there. I'm using a Gateway NE 522 series laptop, with the following hardware components:
    • AMD Quad-Core Processor A4-5000
    • AMD Radeon HD 8330


    After doing a fresh install and software update via software updater, I am experiencing a halt at shutdown every time that I shut down.

    I experience this issue every when I using the context menu to shut down, or when using any of the following commands:
    • sudo shutdown -P now
    • sudo halt


    Pressing ESC after clicking shut down shows me the console, which shows me:
    Code:
    * Checking battery state... [ OK ]
    acpid: exiting
    Checking for running unattended-upgrades:
          speech-dispatcher disabled: edit /etc/default/speech-dispatcher
                    * Asking all remaining processes to terminate... [ OK ]
    
    * Killing all remaining proceses... [fail]
    nm-dispatcher.action: Caught signal 15, shutting down...
      * Deconfiguring network interfaces... [ OK ]
      * Deactivating swap... [ OK ]
      * Unmounting local filesystems... [ OK ]
    umount: /run/lock: not mounted
    umount: /run/shm: no mounted
    mount: / is busy
      * Will now halt
    [    96.301431] Power down.
    The system then freezes, powered on, for an indefinite amount of time (read: forever).

    This does not happen with restarts.

    Please halp.

    try

    Code:
    sudo shutdown -h now
    I don' really like coffee. I guess I'll give my Ubuntu beans to my wife.

    Same issue. ESC log has changed:

    Code:
    * Killing all remaining processes... [fail]
    modem-manager [930]: <info> Caught signal 15, shutting down...
    
    * Deconfiguring network interfaces... [ OK ]
    * Deactivating swap... [ OK ]
    umount: /run/lock: not mounted
    umount: /run/shm: not mounted
    * Will now halt
    [    620.820309] Power down.
    Then it stays on. Forever.

    Did you try pressing enter while the system is hanging?
